Symptoms of the Elite Agenda
Drugs and War on Drugs
(Work in Progress)

This page describes a major symptom of Elite influence and control. The operations (conspiracies) intended to advance the Elite Agenda of fascist, global dominion (supranational world government using business-dominated entities) comprise most of the world's major geopolitical, social, and financial chaos.

If you are new to the idea of the 'Power Elite' (aka 'Ruling Class,' 'Elite,' 'Illuminati,' 'Corporatocracy,' and so on), please see the introductory summary/description
Elite Agenda and M-O.

Here is a more extensive analysis [off-site link, new window/tab], though not quite as involved as it gets. Be aware that there are varying views on the nature and scope of the Elite. For example, the preceding link says they've been active for about a hundred years, whereas others say centuries, even thousands of years. I lean toward the latter view.

It can be difficult to believe the government and large corporations would be involved with illegal drugs. But the debilitation of society, and the profit therefrom serves to advance the Agenda. A look at the sordid history of the Elite and its ruthless manipulation and control of human societies in other areas usually eases this challenging shift in perspective. There are few, if any, aspects of our lives they don't heavily influence, and even control. The more you learn about them, the easier it is to see that this is so, and to see through many politicians and 'the news.'

Hypocrisy So Blatant, Only Propaganda Can Maintain It

Stated in the simplest terms, the self-righteous War on Drugs is basically a majority of an otherwise drug- and food-addicted majority (see below) ganging up on a minority and stigmatizing them, then playing high and mighty. Compared to the damage being done to physical bodies by legal drugs, the no-no drugs are a peehole in the snow. This is so, for one thing, because the legal ones are pushed under guise of benefit to us and are trustingly and widely used. It's a mean game perpetrated at its foundation by elite manipulation, the purpose of which is to create profit, illness, chaos, and to increase people's susceptibility to control.

For example, take the scourge of Ritalin and the victimization of millions of children who are pushed to becoming drug dependent because of irresponsible medical policies backed by elite control, and in turn accepted by the brainwashed populace. But legal-drug abuse also potentiates the tendency to illegal-drug use and abuse.

One irony, of course, is that both categories—legal and illegal—are pushed by essentially the same malfeasant network. The illegal trade is much beloved by the elite because it produces annually about a half-trillion-dollar tax-free liquid asset that can be put to all kinds of underhanded purpose (such as supporting terrorism) without the messy irritation of accounting, and which also actually props up our economy (more below). The sad joke is, of course, that local and state authorities, if they're not playing in the sandbox, think they have a chance of stopping this juggernaut.

Local efforts at law enforcement amount to this: running madly around building sandbag levees, while the big dam owners upstream regulate the sluice gates. An exercise in futility. Einstein said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results. We didn't learn with Prohibition in the 1920's, and we're learning nothing now. Compounding the inequity of criminalizing a matter of personal choice, is the enormous cost of enforcement, prosecution, and incarceration. Then, officials turn around looking for money for schools and so on.

Presently, around half the people in American prisons are non-violent drug cases. One hook is that prisons are now being run more and more by corporations for profit. Naturally, guests are needed, hence another source of hypocritical motive and pressure to keep drugs illegal.

Drug- and Food-Addicted Blowhardism
Society has its addicting and poisonous drugs of choice. We have our foods of choice, many of which are addicting and poisonous, such as sugar, meat and white flour. In addition, our processed foods contain neurotoxic substances, called excitotoxins, which are allowed by the FDA, whose lips are too-often planted on the collective corporate butt.

So, what's the goal here with prohibition—to "protect" people, especially children, from the evil drugs? OK, not a bad idea, but then we turn around and poison the kids mercilessly with conventionalized aspects of our way of life. Any Holistic practitioner will tell you sugar is much closer to drug than food. In my view, giving it to a baby, or anyone below the age of consent, should be criminal. Note I said "giving." This is the fine point. Once we grow up, we've got a right to poison ourselves with sugar—or cocaine. Another horrendous "food" pushed on kids is homo/pasteurized cow milk—in all its permutations. Cases of ADD have been resolved just be removing this factor from a kid's diet.

But here's another irony. Rather than seek a sane route, 'Dr Frankenstein' prefers to leave kids on the dairy and additive-laden processed foods, and give Ritalin to the ADD-afflicted child. We now have about 6 million kids taking that poison—on top of the myriad others purposely and in passing conveyed, one way or antother, into the bodies of our precious children.

The previous director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), Dr. Steven Hyman, a neuroscientist and expert in how psychotropic drugs work, published articles noting that repeated exposure to stimulant drugs leads to addiction and alterations in gene expression:
Hyman SE: "Initiation and adaptation: a paradigm for understanding psychotropic drug action, "Am J Psychiatry 1996; 153:151-162 Yet, Dr. Hyman endorsed a Ritalin experiment to be conducted on toddlers.

Yet the 'anti-drug' blowhards, from parents addicted/dependent upon coffee, cigarettes, sugar, alchohol, and the myriad OTC drugs dispensed like water, to the politically correct but misguided politicians and law enforcement officials playing into elite hands, stand aghast at some one smoking a joint or sniffing some cocaine.

One particularly nasty prescription-drug category is the SSRI, or Selected Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. Serotonin is an excitatory neurotransmitter, a chemical essential to nerve impulse flow. The SSRI prevents the natural reabsorption of excess serotinin in the nerve synapse. All SSRIs can cause dependency. This happens because when a person stops taking the drug or even reduces the amount of it, he experiences adverse physical and/or psychological events—some quite severe. In fact, legal-drug effects are becoming exposed as cause for several of the "unexplained" shootings, such as in schools.
Christopher Pittman Despite overwhelming evidence showing that Zoloft triggered Chris’ behavior, the jury found him guilty. He has been sentenced to 30 years...
Kip Kinkel  15-year-old Springfield, Oregon boy who opened fire in the school cafeteria had been on Prozac...
Jeff Weise  16-year-old Redlake, Minnesota assailant was on Prozac, a deeply disturbed youth who had been treated for depression in a psychiatric ward...

By far the worst dependency-producing SSRI is Paxil. Followed fairly closely by Zoloft and more distantly by Prozac. The reason for the difference is strictly chemical. Dependency is dictated by the length of time the drug stays in the body). The shorter the time, the worse the dependency adverse effects, because replacement is required more frequently. Because Paxil's duration is 21 hours, it ranks No. 1 in causing dependency. Zoloft follows close behind with a duration of 26 hours. Prozac, on the other hand, has a duration of 5.7 days.


North Central Mass Alliance For a Drug-Free Future
(some repetition here of points made above that bear repeating)

Sun, 26 Jun '05: Local newspaper, colleges form anti-drug alliance.

The Fitchburg/Leomsinter (MA) Sentinel & Enterprise, Fitchburg State, and Mt Wachusett Community College have formed an alliance of "community leaders" and officials to help fight the area's problem with drug abuse and trafficking. A noble idea--if they'd only see/admit what the worst drug problem is by far--legal drugs. However, their focus is on the more politically corrrect arena, the low-down, criminal, illegal-drug dealers, who, to a person, they utterly revile with all the lily-white sheen they can muster.

But nothing is said of the nasty, low-down, criminal, legal-drug dealers, who are legitimate community members (more on this below). Nor is anything said about the societally condoned, unstigmatized, 'passel' of drugs and drug-like substances that, taken with legal drugs, constitute a much greater threat than the politically correct cause. Indeed, aspects of that 'passel' frequently appear in the paper as admirable or cute or socially engaging facts of community life. They are no less destructive, however, and often more so. To their credit, of course, they promote the consumer economy.

To be fair, we have to say it could be just a deadly innocent lack of awareness. But it's this writer's intention to make the case publicly and privately as often as possible until the facts are on the table. Then, either something really good will happen, or it will become apparent how deep the hypocrisy runs (even, perhaps, throughout the community, not just among official folk).

What must be the fundamental goal of this Alliance? Improving the image of the community? Quality of life? Decreasing the abuse of a certain stigmatized group of drugs (SGD)? All these are obvious, but what about putting this campaign in the context of a more fundamental goal: protecting and improving the health of people and the community? In this context, the campaign is left wanting.

The questionable tone of the current approach is offered in the article: "The Alliance focuses on the three key areas of the problem: Enforcement, education/prevention, and treatment." These items were perhaps not purposely listed by priority, but the order indicates a misguided mindset. How many decades of failed enforcement will it take to conclude that it will never work, but operates mainly as an expensive cops-and-robbers merry-go-round? As noted, Einstein said insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.

Even if law enforcement were to make a serious dent in the local flow of SGD, that will most likely be countered with increasing violence from the dealers, because there is too much demand and too much money involved. We are thus moving ourselves toward open street war and increasing threat to officers' and even citizens' lives.

Why do we love violence and war? The very worst community problems arising from the drug scene are all direct or indirect results of the illegality of the drugs. In other words, we've learned nothing from Prohibition, and so invite the criminals in to handle things.

Yet corporations get away with "dealing" contamination easily more dangerous that SGDs. This includes not only legal drugs, but industrial chemicals. Our air, food, and water are widely contaminated by corporations that operate legally, thanks to the legislative protections created by corporate-owned politicians. This is an excellent example of the difference between 'legal' and 'just.' Also, in many of these legal cases, we are being assaulted with substances, as opposed to exercising choice.

Recently, albeit quite belatedly, the chemical threat has come to the fore. But even if the problem were solved yesterday, the momentum behind decades of poisoning will take its toll for decades to come. The cruel irony comes as money is fleeced from well-meaning donators and those walking, riding, and running citizens, to be sent down the sink-hole of medical disease research looking for toxic treatments (drugs) for the symptoms of toxicity.

Some will argue that the street-drug demand factor is where the education/prevention facet of the Alliance's approach comes in. True, but that should be priority number one, treatment number two, and enforcement a distant third, finally to be eliminated. Money wasted on repression--investigations, prosecutions, and incarcerations could be much better applied to outreach and treatment. One Fitchburg politician said addicts need to be incarcerated to be treated properly. If true, resources could come from terminating enforcement, and it could be in special treatment centers, and by choice for adults.

Alas, however, the anti-drug fervor has reached a level where even the treatment centers are reviled, complainants saying they bring in an 'undesirable element.' They even lower property values, the crying goes, so "not in my back yard." Such snobbery and selfishness ought to be beneath the good Judeo-Christian officials and citizens that abound locally.

Fighting the problem with guns and handcuffs is a huge waste of energy and resources. Consider what a group of law enforcement people (LEAP) have to say (essentially, regulation, not prohibition).

I won't repeat the regulation argument here, but will say that you will find the greatest resistance to it among the criminal global elitists (and their lapdogs in Washington) who run the banks that launder the big drug cash that then finds and winds its way to Wall Street and holds up the US economy. Oh yes, the hypocritical soap-boxing is heavier by orders of magnitude on The Hill.

Also resistant to reform will be the corporations who profit from running prisons. Prison-building is now one of our fastest-growing industries--right in step with the out-sourcing of our maufacturing potential. However, both that process and the drug trade are managed by the global elite. Corporately owned legislators are lobbied and propagandized to make laws that incarcerate millions of Americans in "The War on Drugs." This has as much to do with the interest of the corporate-controlled prison industry as anything else. And, as prisons come more under corporate control, the captive labor being put to work is becoming competitive with outsourced labor:

"There are currently...more than two million [people] incarcerated in the United states. And of those two million--half of whom were added in the last ten years--more than sixty percent are non-violent drug offenders. There has been a trend...toward employing virtual slave labor for multinational corporations...everything from processing credit card statements, to making airline reservations, to assembling your tennis shoes." - Michael C. Ruppert, Crossing the Rubicon

The first drug to be released from its bonds should be marijuana. The marvelous, multi-use hemp plant is very much a commercial threat to oil companies, the alcohol & tobacco industries, a large number of chemical corporations, and the paper and fabric industries. Various big businesses, with plenty of dollars and influence conspired to suppress the truth and to create and maintain illegality.

If hemp were utilized for its vast array of commercial products, it would create a new industrial revolution. Entrepreneurs have not been educated on this potential. The super rich have conspired to spread misinformation about an extremely versatile plant that, if used properly, would heavily challenge their companies, most of which are Earth-negative.

In the mid 1930s, the marijuana word was created to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp plant. It is no secret that propaganda campaigns were launched to discredit hemp by demonizing the cannabis-producing variety. THINK about it. At the least, only that variety should have been outlawed, since no one can get high from the other.

Before the engineered hysteria:
• 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.
• The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.
• The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th Century.
• The oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
• Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, and Van Goghs, as well as most early canvas paintings, were principally painted on hemp linen.

We could have a thriving hemp cottage industry in this region if, instead of knuckling under, we stood up to the feds, fought for our freedom, and got the hemp law changed.

You will find, if you look into it, that a major motive for the Afghanistan Attack was to restore the heroin flow cut off by the Taliban, which went from 186 tons pre-CIA-control to the current post-CIA-control amount of around 4,000 tons. And you will also find, if you look into it, that the Kosovo Attack was designed to solidify the heroin trade route to Europe. Moreover, you'll find that, quite frequently, after the US military has devastated an area that drugs, especially heroin, soon follow. This is happening now in Iraq, and the elitists intend to bring that culture down with the stuff.

Another class of drugs, however, is more dangerous than the SGD--prescription and OTC drugs. These we can call the accepted-group of drugs, or AGD. I say more dangerous, because, not only are many much more disruptive chemically, but with SGD, no one in position of authority is saying, "Take this, it's good for you." On 28 June '05, the S&E ran an editorial "Prescription for disaster." It discusses the dangers of mistakes with prescriptions, but begs the question of whether our reliance on drugs is wise to begin with. That's the issue no one raises. Drugs are a given.

There is then a third group: society's chosen-group, or recreational drugs (CGD), namely caffeine, nicotine and alcohol. Coffee is a national pastime and sacred cow. But a single cup of coffee cause the body to elevate the fight-or-flight hormone cortisol for two days. Elevated cortisol leads to several so-called diseases, including bone-density loss and cancer, premature aging and diabetes. Cute folks, those caffeine addicts.

Here also is the massive hypocrisy already noted: The accepted-drug addicted majority stigmatize the illegal-drug using minority, staring down like Pinocchios of hypocrisy at them and passing laws and jUGDment. People are then persecuted, prosecuted and incarcerated for something which is a matter of personal choice.

Finally we come to the drug-like substances not generally recognized as drugs, but which are addicting or habituated and health negative, having a drug-like effect on the body. These are usually mistakenly thought of as food, and include sugar and most grain products, especially white flour. These I'll call the food-group of drugs, FGD. It's truly dangerous, and the kids are really taking a beating from it. (An important subset of this group is the additives in processed food, which are capable, for example, of causing ADD--which, of course, we then poison kids with Ritalin to "correct.") These three groups taken together may be called the unstigmatized-group of drugs, or UGD; and we can establish a polarity between this and the SGD.

If anyone doubts the deadliness of the AGD, let him consider that these kill somewhere between 110 thousand and 130 thousand people annually, as admitted by the medical establishment. Compare that to figures on deaths by illegal drugs. In fact, there is no comparison: the legal ones are far more deadly--and their dosages are controlled. One might argue that this is an acceptable risk, because AGD are so greatly needed. The dead might disagree with that, and I suggest the vast majority of the use of AGD is unnecessary and a result of trafficking (politely called marketing and prescribing) driven by avarice. And the kids are taking a real beating from these also.

Most drugs in AGD are unnecessary, because the principles of wellness (see Meaningful Health Care Reform) are amost completely disregarded in the diagnosis-prescription process, in favor of the chemical 'solution,' which in most cases is no solution at all, but actually worsens illness. I will argue this point anywhere at any time with anyone who wishes to engage it. Also, there is sufficient history of the ravages of medical drugs even to argue convincingly for malfeasance, in addition to avarice, behind the trafficking of legal drugs. But if it's a comfort to convince yourself that the Vioxx scandal was an isolated incident, please be my guest.

The CGD and FDG groups also present a more dangerous threat to society than the SGD, and perhaps the greatest challenge to overcome. Why? Many more people are addicted to, want them, and take them (some of that due to brainwashing), just like other people want the SGD.

All we need to demonstrate this perfectly would be if the tables were turned. Then the latte, coolatta and white-flour/sugar Starbucks addicts would be in the alleys looking for their fix, and the goody-two-shoes would be sitting at home puffing a joint or sniffing lines in front of the TV bemoaning those low-life illegal drug users and the filthy dealers that supply them. I know this sounds a bit facetious, but it is essentially correct.

An important point is that our society is drug-tuned in general. It is magic-bullet-tuned. Pop a pill for everything. There are drug ads on TV that don't even disclose the claimed purpose, yet encourage people to talk to their doctor! It is massively hypocritical to say do as I say, not as I do.

We've got about 6 million kids on Ritalin in the US, and approaching 2 million ages 6-18 on Prozac (and some on Paxil, which is worse). These drugs can cause more mental problems than they are said to solve. Every teen involved in the notorious shootings and killings like Columbine, Springfield Orgeon, and Red Lake were on Prozac. Millions of adult Americans are on anti-depressants as well. It is madness simply to accept this, as we apparently are doing, and a major inconsistency and error to ignore it in the Alliance.

Below this section is a mind-boggling collection of information about the devastation of kids by psychiatric drugs, especially antidepressants, which are being 'pushed' much harder than street drugs by multi-million-dollar advertising and marketing. This was sent to me by an internet associate who is a family psychiatrist.

As noted above, fundamentally, the drug laws are a decision by the acceptably drug-addicted and self-destructive majority to stigmatize and bully a minority to deprive them of the drugs they want. It's simple, un-American discrimination, and an insult to the Republic.

So if we really want to address the 'drug' issue honestly and effectively, the scope of attention, definition and concern needs to be widened considerably, or a huge failure will result, the self-comfort achieved from the politically correct focus notwithstanding. Because a person killed by a heroin overdose or at knifepoint by a desperate drug dealer is no more dead and no more tragic than any one of the 130,000 annual victims of Dr. Frankenstein's noxious medicaments, or the many folks who end up plugged into the disease-facility wall after some years of indulging the CGD/FDG complex.

To soapbox on the dangers of SGD while our community and the nation are being eroded and ravaged much worse by UGD is, with all due respect, a truly dangerous lack of awareness at best. So I respectfully suggest a thorough reconsideration of the stated goals and M-O of the North Central Massachusetts Alliance For a Drug-Free Future.

More on SSRI-Induced Suicides/Homicides: It Isn't Just About School Shooters
from Gary Kohls, MD - Family Psychiatrist

"In 2004 the FDA issued a black box warning about the increased risk of suicidality in children taking the newer antidepressants, including the SSRIs (Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, and Lexapro) and also Effexor and Wellbutrin (also marketed as Zyban).On June 30, 2005 the FDA published a Public Health Advisory warning of the possibility of increased suicidality in adults treated with antidepressants. The FDA followed this on July 1, 2005 with a Talk Paper elaborating on the potential risk and the agency’s plans to study the problem further. All of these FDA documents are available on FDA should have issued these warnings at least a decade ago." - Peter Breggin, MD
